Great things happen when people are inspired by something much bigger than their own self-preservation. As the leader, give your people a purpose they are willing to die for, as opposed to just coming to work for 5, 10 or 20 years doing the same mundane task every day without any sense of direction.
The vision and mission of the organization are critical for enabling others to feel as if their work has a purpose and meaning beyond the tasks they perform each day. Those without this higher calling often require lots of external motivation to keep moving forward. On the other hand, those who operate and live from a place of purpose are inspired daily to give 100%. They may get tired, but they can return to their higher purpose to be inspired.
To remain relevant in today’s business landscape, companies must be more than just instruments for generating money. When you inspire purpose in every nook and cranny of the organization, your employees will feel inspired every day and perform at heights you never imagined.
